Auction cottages handy for the A1...
WITH an auction guide price of £5,000 to £10,000, they might look like a bargain, but a pair of derelict cottages at Leeming Bar would be a challenge for even the most determined developer.
The properties, in a half acre plot, stand right next to the southbound carriageway of the A1 between Catterick and Leeming Bar.
There is no vehicular access though you can reach them via a public footpath, and they have been derelict for 20 years so residential use has been legally abandoned. The most likely bidders are speculators who might cash in on the planned upgrade to the A1. Osborne Cottages are up for auction on October 4.
